I just finished watching your how to deal blackjack series, and I really enjoyed it. As someone who's considering pursuing a career as a dealer, I found it very informative. I've been trying to do research on what the career is like to determine if it's a good fit for me. The internet seems full of contradicting figures, many of which I imagine have been written by some dealing schools. I have a ton of questions, and I hope you aren't too bothered by them.
I know that you've said the best way to improve is to practice. Do you think that these schools are a good way to practice? Would you consider them worth the investment?
You don't mention poker much in your videos. Do you not think it's worthwhile to go to school to be a poker dealer?
I'm also most interested in dealing card games. I noticed that you mentioned that men usually end up at the Craps table. Do you find that women or men usually deal poker? Do you think I'd have a hard time getting a job as a male blackjack dealer?
There seems to be a lot of mixed information that gets written online about what the job's like. I understand that I'll probably make less money starting off, and that it completely depends on what casino I end up at, but what could I expect as a starting annual salary?
I've heard most dealers only work part time at casinos. Do you think it's necessary to work another job while being a dealer? If so, is it possible to become a part time dealer at 2 casinos simultaneously?
If you don't mind me asking, what dealing school did you go to, and how long did it take you to earn an audition? Did you find the "job assistance programs" to be useful at all?
I'm sorry if I've asked too many questions. I'm genuinely interested in becoming a casino dealer, but I'm trying to do my research before I make any sort of commitment.
Again, I greatly appreciated your video. having played a bit of blackjack myself, I didn't fully realize how much there is to being a dealer. I hope you continue making videos, and I hope that they gain popularity.
